While I have been avoiding the shops I did take my lovely daughter to The Great Canadian Superstore that offers President's Choice products...and the president is Galen Weston.
Lovely daughter does not drive and lugging numerous heavy bags of groceries is not much fun nor is it very ladylike wearing heels. Groceries were the main reason for driving for 30 minutes out of town.
I browsed the Joe Fresh section, as did she...
I found a new grey wool tunic top to pair with my leggings.
Lovely daughter found much more and reasonably priced too...she looked very happy with her haul!
While it might look like a gunny sack here
it is much nicer looking off the hanger.
Are you loving zippers as much as I am?
We had an unfortunate incident while shopping there...
when I started the car the gas tank showed empty and I had filled up the day before!
I can't believe that someone siphoned off an entire tank of gas...
well that's what I thought at the time
My trusted mechanics enter on the scene today
and the news is not great.
The mechanic said that someone did try to get the gas
and that Volvo's have a screen and a system which prevents siphoning
and they have broken the sensor with whatever they put into the tank
and they also keyed the side of my car...
so it's in the hands of the insurance brokers now.
is over the moon about her new luxe linen drapes and I love her enthusiasm.
While my recent find pales by comparison it has excited me nevertheless.
I found a new bowl that makes my heart soar with joy.
It is a simple white vessel
round and olde
and I cannot put it away just yet
I want to soak in all it's simple beauty.
Bowl of beauty
with Frog Tree Alpaca wool yarn.
My latest knitting project is a "Faux" Mobius wrap.
I googled Mobius and watched the You Tube presentation and realized that I was not savvy enough to tackle it!
I am knitting one long strip
using the easiest garter stitch as it looks very loose and lacy
and then twisting after completion before joining the seam.
I have cast on 125 stitches on size 6.5 US needles and will knit until I have about 48 inches in length, give or take...
I'll wrap it around and see if it is adequate for the look that I want.
I highly recommend bamboo needles
they slip the stitches as if they were silken gossamers with wings.
I will post the finished product but that will be many weeks away as I do not knit 24/7!
What projects have you got on the go right now?
I am closing with an image of the newly printed vintage photos in their new frames
(this is for you Ida!)
